Eccentric movie star and director Vincent Gallo wants his obituary raised on a billboard overlooking Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles when he dies.

The Brown Bunny director and star upset Sunset Boulevard officials by pasting a huge billboard of Chloe Sevigny performing fellatio on him to advertise the controversial film - and now he wants his death notice to hang over the famous street.

He says, "I want to buy a billboard on Sunset Boulevard that says, 'Breathe a sigh of relief - Vincent Gallo is dead."

Gallo also insists he should be remembered with a giant memorial.

He adds, "A King Kong-sized monument in solid gold... It's going to be like the Grand Canyon, and tourists will visit it from all around the world."
